The Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building, is known to showcase national flags of friendly countries on important occasions.

The Indian national flag will not be displayed on the Burj Khalifa tonight.

"We have just learned from our friends in Emaar that on account of a major technical snag they won't be able to light up Burj Khalifa with the Indian tricolour tonight," Navdeep Singh Suri, the Indian ambassador to the UAE, said.
 
"A bit of a disappointment for friends who were expecting this," he added.
